Empire Cafe LogoDuring the Commonwealth Games an exciting Culture 2014 project, Empire Café, will be activated in the centre of Glasgow.

It will be the focus of talks, readings, a café and a range of other activities exploring and uncovering the dark history of slavery and the slave trade in Glasgow.

Our contribution to the Empire Café will be a specially developed new walk that reveals the connection between women and slavery and a rosette making workshop in honour of the firebrand campaigners against slavery and for the vote.
